Pilates focuses on stretching and strengthening the whole body to improve balance, muscle strength, tone, flexibility and posture, however a larger component of Pilates teaching is to strengthen your ‘core’ muscles. Most of us will at some point in our life develop poor posture, back or neck ache or other musculoskeletal pain. For many of us, that pain could be prevented by considering how to correctly utilise our ‘core’ muscles. Once you’ve have learnt this, doing it correctly starts to come naturally which then reduces the load on your joints, ligaments and muscles.
The moves and postures are usually performed with body weight aloneon the ground using an exercise mat and small pieces of equipment such as resistance rings, balls and bands. Even without added equipment, the workout is challenging and provides great toning benefits.
At Clinic Equilibrium, we keep our classes small with a maximum of 8 clients, allowing our instructors to give the highest client care.
Mat work is a great option for beginners because of its emphasis on learning how to control your muscles during exercises.
Mat Class Passes are £60 for 5 classes, £105 for 10 classes and £190 for 20 classes.
Class passes are valid on any mat class and valid for 4 months from the first class.
We also offer a 30 day class pass which is £128 for 12 classes (including reformer and aerial) and valid for 30 days from the first class.
